Burges 35 - Andress 34: Mustangs shake up 5A with key district win

By Jaime Chavez

The Burges Mustangs improved to 5-3 overall by holding off the Andress Golden Eagles 35-34 Friday night at Burges' Mustang Stadium. Burges' Tavorus Jones rushed for 210 yards on 18 carries and scored on touchdown runs of 50 and 31 yards.

Andress' Malcolm Anderson picked up the slack in the second half with touchdown runs of 65 and 16 yards. Anderson also scored on a 72-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Elias Duncan and added a fourth TD by intercepting an Andrew Rutledge pass and going 39 yards for the distance. Andress fell to 5-2 overall and 2-1 in the District 2-5A Division II rankings. Burges is also 2-1 in the district standings.

Eastlake 59 - Eastwood 41: Eastlake’s Elijah Uribe runs over Eastwood in 59-41 win

By Alex Nicholas 

For Eastlake’s Eli Uribe, 200-yard rushing games are becoming way too easy.

Uribe ran for more than 200 yards for the second straight game, powering for seven rushing touchdowns and added a receiving touchdown to improve Eastlake to 3-1 in district play in a resounding 59-41 win over Eastwood.

Eastwood quarterback Andrew Martinez also had a big night, throwing for 428 yards and four touchdowns, he opened the second half with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Rodriguez which made it 24-21 Eastlake with 9:05 left in the third quarter as the game was close throughout the first half.

Although Uribe would cash in seven straight touchdowns on seven straight possessions from the end of the first quarter until the fourth quarter as Eastwood would be playing catch up all night.

After the Martinez touchdown pass to open the third quarter, Uribe would score on a 29-yard touchdown pass from Sebastian Rendon on a fourth down play which seemed to cease all momentum from that point until the final gun.

Uribe’s seventh rushing touchdown was an eight-yard touchdown run with 5:35 in the fourth quarter making it 52-35 Falcons who were in full control at that point.

The senior finished the evening 288 rushing yards on 45 carries, with seven rushing touchdowns, he caught four passes for 55 yards and a receiving touchdown, leading Eastlake to 522 total yards of offense.

His younger brother, EC Uribe also had a big first quarter interception for Eastlake who picked off Martinez twice in the game.  EC Uribe’s interception came on the opening possession for Eastwood who had driven inside the 10-yard line which flipped major momentum to Eastlake early on.

Julian Melucci hit a 45-yard field goal right before halftime to give Eastlake a 24-14 halftime lead.

The seven rushing touchdowns from Eli Uribe ties the record for the second-most rushing touchdowns scored in a game in El Paso High School football history.

Franklin 50 - Socorro 0: Franklin blanks Socorro in SAC doubleheader

By Alex Nicholas

Franklin extends its winning streak to five games after an 0-2 start to the season as they dominated Socorro 51-0 Friday night at the SAC.

The Cougars would score on five straight possessions in the first half and got a pair of defensive touchdowns right before halftime to improve to 3-0 on the season in district play and 5-2 overall.

Miles McWhorter ran for 138 yards, and three touchdowns for the Cougars, while Cameron Byrd completed 7-for-13 passes for 156 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the first half.

Jordan Morales would take a pick-six 102 yards for Franklin touchdown with 2:49 left in the first half, followed up by a fumble recovery by Zack Farhart just a few seconds later to account for the Cougars defensive scores.

The win marks Franklin’s 200th win in school history.

Horizon 48 - Parkland 28: Horizon proves that two heads are better than one

By Steve Escajeda

Horizon’s two-headed monster of quarterback Jacob Quijas and running back Ernie Garcia proved to be too much for Parkland as the Scorpions downed the Matadors 48-28 Friday night.

Quijas completed 13 of his 17 passes and threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for 119 yards and two more touchdowns.

Garcia, who came into the game averaging over 176 yards rushing per game, was held to just 25 yards, but it was all uphill from there.

Garcia rushed for a touchdown, returned a kickoff 71 yards for a score, and caught five passes for 175 yards and three more touchdowns.

Defensively, Horizon’s Aaron Sigala, who came into the game leading the city with five interceptions, picked off two more to give him seven interceptions in seven games.

The win lifted Horizon to 1-0 in the District 1-5 Div. 2 standings and 3-4 overall.

Parkland, which fell to 0-2 and 1-7 overall, had two backs gained over 100 yards. Anthony Carrillo rushed for 123 yards with two touchdowns and Isaiah Beasley added 122.

The Matadors, who have recorded an impressive 46-11-1 record over the last five years, are in the middle of their first losing season since 2011.

Pebble Hills 35 - Coronado 7: Spartans QB Ochoa scores five TDs en route to another win

By Adrian Broaddus 

Pebble Hills sophomore quarterback Gael Ochoa threw for 204 passing yards, had 80 rushing yards and scored five total touchdowns to lead the Spartans to another win in 1-6A, topping the struggling Coronado Thunderbirds, 35-7.

Spartans running back Erik Marin totaled 158 rushing yards on the night, while wideout Jalil Bost finished with 126 receiving yards, including a 91-yard receiving score.

Coronado now drops to 1-6 on the season and will limp into the West Side Bowl next week against Franklin. The Thunderbirds had only 24 players suit out on Friday.

Pebble Hills (4-3, 3-1) is continuing their pursuit for playoff contention, as they are currently tied with Eastlake and Americas for second place in 1-6A. The Spartans face off against Americas next week in what could decide playoff contention.

Austin 41 - Irvin 0: Austin runs past Irvin

By Jeremy Carranco
Following a big win over Burges last week, Austin showed no signs of letting up against last
place Irvin, cruising to a 41-0 win.

Seven different Panthers scored on the night in a dominating performance for Austin. The
Panthers outgained the Rockets 377-113 with over 300 of those yards coming on the ground.
The Panthers were led by Jayden Wilson and Isreal Luna who both ran for a touchdown.
Irvin’s John Knutson was held to zero yards passing on the night, allowing a 36-yd pick-six late in
the first quarter to Austin’s Irving Cortinas.
Austin scored 28 of its 41 points in the first quarter, taking away any momentum from Irvin
going forward and spoiling homecoming for the Rockets.
Austin (4-3, 2-1) will host El Paso next week while Irvin (2-6, 0-4) is at Andress.
